Film Screening: Choctaw Code Talkers

October 12, 2017 - 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm

The Choctaws played a significant role in communications during World War I. The Choctaws are also an integral part of Mississippi’s rich cultural heritage, with the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians having a population of approximately 10,000. The evening will feature a screening of the documentary Choctaw Code Talkers, followed by a discussion including veterans and Choctaws. This program is part of World War I and America, a two-year national initiative of Library of America presented in partnership with The Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History, the National World War I Museum and Memorial, and other organizations, with generous support from The National Endowment for the Humanities.
